Poor Man's Bible

Mike June

The term Poor Man's Bible has come to describe works of art which either individually or collectively illustrate the teachings of the Bible for a largely illiterate population. Mike June's latest release has the same effect, illuminating the heart and soul of the workingman. Relentlessly touring while staying true to his "door to door salesman" ethic, June carries on the traditions of Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs as a modern day troubadour. Two Parts Springsteen and one part Joe Strummer, Mike June is blazing a trail through Americana's Mann Gulch. We LOVE this record and know you will too.
